Orthodox Jewish Chamber Honors Artist Morris Katz with Online Website of Katz’s Presidential Portraits

Posted on June 2, 2020 By

In recognition of Jewish Heritage Month, the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce (OJC) has created an online Historic Presidential Collection gallery by NYC artist Morris Katz. Morris Katz, a world-renowned celebrity artist who arrived on American shores as a refugee after enduring the horrors of the Holocaust, created the Presidential Collection, portraits of each president from George Washington through George H. W. Bush.

Duvi Honig, CEO and founder of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce (OJC), said, “At a time with so much hate, anger, and antisemitism out there, this message brings unity and love.”

In his honor, the Chamber founded the Morris Katz Foundation as well as a special website http://morriskatz.org/ featuring Katz’s private Presidential Collection.

The OJC has released the following article. For more information contact Duvi Honig at duvi@ojchamber.com or call 212-659-5270 Ext. 101

Historic Presidential Collection by Morris Katz Reintroduced in Honor of Jewish Heritage Month
The month of May has been officially designated by presidents of both parties as “Jewish Heritage Month,” a tribute to the contributions that Jewish immigrants and their descendants have made to this nation; their patriotism; and appreciation for American values.

In honor of this occasion, the Wall Street-based Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce has reintroduced the legendary “Presidential Collection” portraits of U.S. presidents to the general public. The full private collection is now available online for the first time in history so that it can be viewed and appreciated by Americans far and wide who are under the Coronavirus lockdown.

The Presidential Collection was the apple of the eye of the legendary artist Morris Katz, a Holocaust survivor, who painted it to perfection as a show of appreciation to the nation that provided him refuge and protected his religious freedoms. Nearly a decade since his passing, the Chamber is committed to preserve Morris’s legacy and highlight this historic collection in celebration of Jewish Heritage Month.

Earlier this month, Congress passed with overwhelming bipartisan support the “Never Again Education Act,” which provides funding for Holocaust education in U.S. schools. In his official proclamation of Jewish Heritage Month for this year, President Trump stated, “Throughout history, the Jewish people have demonstrated an unbreakable spirit, overcoming suffering, cruel oppression, violence, and bigotry.”

Morris Katz was a larger than life personality and representative of these values. He lived them and commit himself to promote them. Morris’s legacy is particularly crucial at this juncture in history as anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic violence are seeing a frightening rise both at home and abroad.

Born in Galicia in 1932, Morris’s once-in-a-generation artistic talent was evident at a young age. During the Holocaust, Morris suffered unspeakable horrors in Nazi concentration camps and lost most of his family. After arriving in New York as a refugee, Morris began working as a carpenter; however, after struggling to find a job where he was able to keep Shabbos, he began painting.

Morris’s art career in the U.S. would earn him global acclaim, with nicknames such as “the world’s fastest artist” and “the Albert Einstein of Art.” Morris was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as both the fastest and most prolific artist in the world, wresting the latter world record from Picasso in his presence! Morris was prominently featured by “Ripley’s Believe it or Not” and a cross section of major US media shows. Morris taught his unique “Instant Art” painting method at art schools and it is being taught through today.

Fame and all, Morris Katz maintained an approachable, good natured persona. He remained at heart a persecuted Jew hailing from one of the world’s poorest regions. He prized his ability to use Judaic art to transmit his heritage to the next generation. Similarly, Morris’s gratitude towards the U.S. for providing him sanctuary and his reverence for the American value of religious liberty knew no bounds.

Within minutes of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Morris began his longest and dearest project ever: The Presidential Collection. Morris spent years painting meticulous masterful portraits of each president from George Washington through, eventually, George H. W. Bush. The artist famous for completing beautiful portraits within minutes spent an average of 200 hours (!) on each Presidential Collection portrait in “Old Master” style. These were the first presidential portraits in history in which the flags featured a precise number of stars, equal to the number of states/colonies in the union at the time.

These portraits became world famous. Millions of postcards featuring them were sold, each one featuring a tribute from the artist to the presidents and the great nation they led.
“Morris is an incredible larger-than-life inspiration to every American Jew, indeed every American,” says Duvi Honig, founder and CEO of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce. “He took enormous pride in both being a Jew and an American patriot. He selflessly dedicated himself to thank and contribute to America and the liberties it stands for. It is an honor to perpetuate Morris’s legacy during this important occasion and recognize all those who are supporting the American Jewish community today.”
“Morris’s contributions to American culture and his deep seated patriotism cannot be overstated,” says Ezra Friedlander, VP of Public Policy for the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce, who has hosted numerous Jewish Heritage Month events in Washington over the years. “There is no more worthy representative of this honor and I am humbled to participate in this effort.”

Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles with Good News! Parks Reopen Tomorrow – Property Taxes Deferred

Posted on April 29, 2020 By

Lakewood Mayor Coles has announced that the township will be reopening Lakewood parks and the lake tomorrow April 30, with the exception of Pine Park. All playgrounds, however, will remain closed for the time being.

Because Pine Park is being used for food distribution, an important public service, that park will be open on Saturday and Sunday only.

Mayor Coles reminds everyone to maintain all the social distancing guidelines put into effect for staying healthy during the COVID-19 situation. “It’s very important that we keep the disease curve on the downward trend. In order to do that, we have to keep staying six (6) feet apart from each other; wear masks if possible; try not to touch your face – all the things that should have become second nature to you by now.

“Governor Murphy’s last executive order also allows us to defer the payment of property taxes until June 1st. I know many of us are having a very rough time and I hope this will relieve a little of the stress you are experiencing right now.

“With the nice weather coming, hopefully, we’ll all be able to get out and wave to each other from across the street! So again – enjoy the parks; but, please, maintain your distance, wear a mask if at all possible, and stay safe. I just can’t wait for us all to get back to normal.”

Posted on April 29, 2020 By

Mayor Ray Coles and the Township Committee announced that the annual Lakewood Memorial Day parade and ceremony scheduled for May 25, 2020, has been postponed because of the COVID-19 situation and its impact on Lakewood. The parade and ceremony will be rescheduled.

Mayor Coles said, “This event is meant to celebrate and foster a sense of community, and to honor the heroic actions of men and women who have served and are now serving in the military. When we all can get back to our normal routines, it is important to us that we come together and enjoy this American tradition as a community.”

The foremost goal of the Township Committee and all Township officials is to keep its citizens healthy and safe. Coles said, “The Township looks forward to hosting the parade and will make information available to the public when a new date is set. Even though the parade is postponed, residents are encouraged to display their pride and display their American flags during the Memorial Day holiday.

Preferred Nurse Pam Miller Makes Masks

Posted on April 28, 2020 By

Pam Miller, RN, Chatsworth, the director of nursing at the Mount Laurel branch of Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, LLC (PHHC), has been sewing masks with her longtime friend Barbara Wagner, Southampton, N.J.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the friends have made more than 500 masks, using fabric on hand and buying the needed elastic. At first the masks were used for field employees and internal staff at the Mount Laurel office of PHHC. By word-of-mouth, however, people began to call or text what they needed.

Miller said, “We both like to sew and we both help make quilts that are sent all over the world. Sewing masks is not out of character for either one of us.

“Our masks, all of which we donate, have gone to a 55+ community, food bank volunteers, Deborah Hospital, and an oncology facility administering chemo treatments.”

The pair did not want to take any money for the masks so, instead, they ask for donations to the Bridge of Peace Food Bank in Camden, N.J. “We have given the food bank more than $700. The food bank has also received $500 in matching funds. Who would have thought!”
